Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead has named Bridget Hill as director of the Office of State Lands and Investments, which is involved in, among other things, associated wellhead natural gas flaring and coalbed methane leases (see Daily GPI, June 20, 2012). Hill, who was an attorney for the lands office for six years, replaces Ryan Lance, who is moving to the private sector. The office supports the state’s Board of Land Commissioners and the Loan and Investment Board, which are composed of the top five elected officials, including Mead.
